Contextual Information for UCAS Tutors

Students in the Sixth Form at Beths Grammar School will study A Level courses (only).

The school policy is: that all students study a core programme of at least three courses in Year 12. Some students may opt to study four.

In Year 13, students will continue on their programme of three (A Level) courses, although some students may also continue on four.

All Further Mathematicians take A Level Maths and A Level Further Maths as a double option plus two other subjects. Throughout the first two terms of Year 12, we teach the full A Level course in Maths only and then begin teaching the Further Maths course after Easter in the summer term, and throughout Year 13. All students then sit A Level examinations in both subjects, at the end of Year 13.

In the summer exam series of 2019 - students in Year 12 were not routinely entered for linear AS examinations.

UCAS Predicted Grades:

UCAS predicted grades are based on the professional judgement of subject teachers and are informed by:

  • Year 12 Trial (internal) examinations
  • Teacher assessment throughout Year 12, including assessed classwork, homework, test scores and coursework/controlled assessments
  • FFT
  • Individual circumstances which may have contributed to a performance below expectations either during the year or during trial/public exams.
